THE COAST OF INCENSE is the third book in Freya Stark's autobiography. It covers the middle years (1933-1939). The author emerges as an intelligent and gifted woman, a sensitive observer and a courageous traveler.

Her vivid, intimate descriptions of Egypt, the Persian Gulf, Greece, Italy and the Middle East allows us to travel vicariously with every turn of the page. A sunset in Aden, the treasures of Tutankhamen, dinner with the Sheikh of Kuwait, a visit to the Queen of Iraq, a journey on the Orient Express--all are brought to life.

The real focus of this book, however, is the author's introduction to South Arabia, "whose distant, severe and unimaginable beauty lives in my heart."
